Thanks for the great write up. I got all the way to the connections and could not make sense of the instructions. They tell you to cut the wires and then show you soldering only two wires back together. I knew this wasn't right so I stared searching and found this. The only thing I did different was to use speed taps to make the connection and sealed with black silicone. This eliminated the need to cut any wires.

Not sure about anything needing to be reset from the dealer.

Looks like they have gone up. Cant find them for less than 100 now

19. Cut the jumper harness to length leaving enough to go below the TIPM when its reinstalled.

20. Find the Tan/Light Blue (cavity 18) and Tan/Dark Blue (Cavity 22) wires and cut them about half way between the plug and where they enter the harness.


21. There are connectors supplied with the kit but I did not use them as I don’t have the proper crimp tool for the clips. I stripped all the wires, then Tinned all the wires. Place a 1.25” strip of shrink tube over one of the TN/LB wires & solder the TN/LB wires back together along with the Red wire from Jumper Harness. Place a 1.25” strip of shrink tube over one of the TN/DB wires & solder the TN/DB wires back together along with the Black wire from Jumper Harness. Instructions say White/Pink & Black/Dark Blue for the jumper harness but the wires in my kit were red & black.

22. Slide the shrink tube over the soldered parts and temporarily plug the C5 connector back in, install the B+ cable and nut and connect the negative battery cable. Lock/Unlock the vehicle to verify the wires are connected correctly. (if not, reverse the Red, black wires.

23. Disconnect negative battery cable, B+ nut and cable, disconnect the C5 plug again.. Heat the shrink tube until you see the glue coming out.


24. Reinstall the black cover for the C5 connector and plug it back it in.
25. Reinstall TIPM, B+ Cable/Nut, tailgate access cover and negative battery cable.
26. Remove tailgate key from Keychain and enjoy
27. i did the same on my 2011 but it won't work

I was having trouble with my Ac not working all the time now the dealer is telling me my TIPM is bad and that is on back order. sucks to be me with a 19 month old baby and it being 95-100 right now. but my tailgate locks and unlocks with a push of 1 button twice.

Just completed this install on my 2011 SLT QC. Everything well and the lock works.

One thing I had to figure out was the Gray Connector (port 20). On my truck that was a tan/blue wire. This one got connected to the Black wire on the kit.

On the brown connector I used the Tan/Brown wire - again, connected to the red lead on the kit.

This is a very nice upgrade as I have just purchased an Extang Hard Cover. This way the back of my truck is always locked!

Anyone possibly have them?
